Product Description

Allows the use of Canon lenses with an FD mount to be used on Canon EOS camera bodies. The lenses will meter o.k. but will only focus MANUALLY. There is a 1.3x magnification factor and requires a one stop increase in exposure. This version includes a correction glass, so it will focus to infinity.

Since it has no glass inside of it, it's IMPOSSIBLE to get anything close to infinity focus.

Don't put it on too tight or you might not get it off.

Note the Photo above is NOT this product. This product is a adapter which contains a LENS and is superior to the one shown.

The Canon FD/FL series of lenses for the bayonet mount cameras of the past were the standard of high quality optics, and the FL SC and SSC lenses were the best lenses on the market. When the lighter weight eos lenses replaced the bayonet system, many users were forced to retire these superior quality manual focus lenses.

This adapter is far superior to the cheaply machined glassless adapters available elsewhere, I own both. Not only does this adapter fit well on both the camera bodies ( I use XS and XSi) and the lenses, the original optical quality is maintained as well as infinity focus.

By being a 1.3X teleconverter you gain additional magnification, but this is of course unnoticeable when composing in the camera.

Metering is uneffected, and the cheaper glassless one causes "communication" errors which sometimes disables the camera operation, THIS one doesn't.

I use this to adapt lenses and my FL/FD Bellows for macro work, the results are excellent.

The connection is tight and robust enough to handle the extra weight.

I'm using it to join a Canon Rebel Xti and an old Canon zoom lens. This is a great option for those who don't like letting old lenses go to waste. While I agree with the other reviewers that the combination can be a little cumbersome, it beats having to buy a new lens. Great product!

I purchased this item even after reading some of the negative reviews. Here's my take.

Old lenses are a lot of fun and you can get some great lenses for a reasonable price. My macro lens cost me around $100 and it performs much, much better than that. The adapter is a simple metal ring that fits on your camera body lens mount. I happen to have a Canon EOS 40D, but it shouldn't matter as long as the camera has an EF mount. You line up the red dots like you would on a lens and twist it to lock it into place. After that, you mount the lens (I have a Canon FD 50mm f/3.5 macro lens). It snapped right into place. In this configuration, I like to set the camera on AE mode so that I can manually adjust the aperture on the lens and allow the camera to meter and pick the shutter speed.

The only problem (which isn't really a problem) is that when the adapter snaps into place, it isn't held very tightly in place. It is locked in, so it can't fall off but it will wiggle back and forth a few centimeters. This is kind of a pain when you are focusing since it moves around. Other than that, this adapter has worked beautifully for me. I highly recommend it.

The unit worked as described without issue. However the unit is difficult to remove from the lens once its on. Not that big of an issue for me, others my find it extremely problematic.

The mount received was as requested and work as expected except for the issue of it not coming off. There maybe a way to do it but I don't know how except to start unscrewing things. But that is unneeded because I don't think that I will need to remove it anyway. Over all it does what it needs to do.

Edit: I figured o=how to dismount the lens. However (at least on my 50) it has a real problem with make images so soft that the colors bleed out or not in focus at all. Very disappointing. I could be doing something wrong. IF someone knows. Please let me know.

I am also revising my star rating from 3 stars to 4. The product does work as advertised. I just did not know how (at the time) to use it.

It doesn't conform to FD spec. Very difficult to put on and almost can't get off my FD lens.

After carefully examination, I found the problem. It is missing a small hole in the adptor. I need to drill a small hole to make it work. Which hole? Look at an original FD rear cap, you will know.

Now I can put it on and take it off easily. But...it is not tight enough when use on any FD lens. Making it useless. It doesn't conform to FD spec. Period.

A piece of crap from India.

I made the plunge and got a Canon T4i for myself for Christmas. I hadn't bought a camera since 1982 when I got the Canon A1. Over the next few years I would acquire additional lens.

I've not touched that camera for over 15 years. When I got the T4i I was curious about whether or not I could use those lens on the new camera. I found out about this adaper and read the reviews.

I got the adaptor last night and am very impressed with it. I had read some reviews that said that there were no instructions to mount the adaptor on the lens/camera. I was more than surprised to find that this was not the case. Mounting the adaptor and removing it cannot be easier. For the price I have access to some great glass. I plan on getting two more adaptors so I can keep them permanentaly attached on my FD lens.

This is well worth the money.
